A Little Bookmark in History

Remember when I posted last month about finding the 1950s era Allsopp and Chapple Bookstore bookmark while reading a copy of Mrs. Miniver, which I bought at a used book sale?

It's rare that I come upon something like this really old bookmark so, my curiosity pricked, I read what I could about it online. I then happened to mention my discovery to a coworker who grew up near Little Rock. The other day she sent me the following picture:

Allsopp and Chapple Bookshop has long since closed, but the building still stands. Pretty neat little random piece of history.

And all from a bookmark! That's pretty cool!
